Description

Simple crustless zucchini quiche recipe with fresh herbs, tomatoes, and shallots. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, or a light dinner.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium tomato sliced into thin rounds
  • Private Reserve extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 zucchini, sliced into rounds  (about 8 ounces sliced zucchini)
  • 3 shallots, sliced into rounds (about 3.5 ounces sliced shallots)
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp sweet Spanish paprika, divided
  • 1/2 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella (nearly 2 ounces)
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan (about 0.35 ounces)
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 cup skim milk
  •  1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour OR all-purpose flour (about 2 ounces), sifted
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh parsley (about 0.2 ounces)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Arrange sliced tomatoes on paper towel and sprinkle with salt. Leave for a few minutes, then pat dry.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large cooking skillet, heat 2 tbsp Private Reserve extra virgin olive oil over medium heat until shimmering but not smoking. Add zucchini  and shallots. Season with kosher salt, pepper, and 1/2 tsp sweet paprika. Raise heat slightly, and sautee, tossing regularly, until vegetables are tender and nicely colored (with some brown spots on zucchini).
  4. Transfer the cooked zucchini and shallots mixture to the bottom of a lightly oiled 9-inch pie dish like this one. Arrange sliced tomatoes on top. Add mozzarella, and Parmesan (spread evenly across).
  5. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, remaining 1/2 tsp paprika, baking powder, flour, and fresh parsley.
  6. Pour egg mixture into the pie dish on top of the cheese mixture.
  7. Bake in 350 degrees F heated-oven for about 30 minutes or until the egg mixture is well set in the dish.  Remove from oven and wait 5 to 7 minutes before slicing to serve (Quiche will puff up slightly because of the baking powder, but will quickly go down as it sits.)
